I had taken over a decade without visiting Gisenyi and I decided to escape from Kigali to Gisenyi with my wife and two daughters. We booked into the Lakeview Apartments which are literally a stone's throwaway from the DRC. We immediately fell in love with this place and with what it offers which include Wi-Fi (password on request); DStv in... More

I spent one night here in November with a group. From the outside this looks very nice - modern with modern amenities. Upon further inspection, it's as if they were given nice materials but had no idea how to install them.

These guys are amazing. I stayed here with my family and the service was phenomenal. The place is clean, the Manager (Ken) gave us his staff to show us around town - twice!!, they cleaned our car every morning, they were all very courteous, gave us very useful information. We are definitely going back.

This is a place that has really nice views to Lake Kivu. Unfortunately, the apartments are not prepared to have a peaceful stay: you can hear everything from the other rooms. There are 3 rooms per apartment. Lakeview hasn't got a kitchen for their staff, so they use your kitchen, not only for their own food, but also for the... More
